James Beattie
(1852-1934)

Died aged c. 82

Beatties was a small British department store group located primarily in the Midlands of England. In 2005, when it had 12 stores, the group was acquired by House of Fraser. On 14 January 2006, the Birmingham store closed, because a similar House of Fraser store, Rackhams, was not far away. In August 2007, the Telford store was rebranded, along with the Solihull and Sutton Coldfield stores. The group is gradually rebranding all its branches under the House of Fraser name. In January 2010 the Dudley branch was closed.
